Selangor is a state in the west coast of Malaysia. It's the wealthiest, most urbanized and, with 4.1 million people, the most populous of Malaysia's states. It is centred around the urban sprawl of the Klang Valley, surrounding but not including the capital Kuala Lumpur and the federal administrative capital Putrajaya.
Outside its cities, Selangor is adorned with lush green vegetation that varies with the landscape and topography – from the coastal mangroves and verdant tropical rainforest right down to the charming fishing villages that dot the coastline, such as Sekinchan, Tanjung Sepat, Pulau Carey and Pulau Ketam. These fishing villages provide a unique home stay experience, especially for those who love fishing.
Places of interest are easily accessible in Selangor. The public transportation makes it easy to move around from one place to another. Visitors would enjoy the contrast of the urban concrete jungle of Kuala Lumpur, where all roads lead to Selangor and its many natural wonders that awaits them. To name a few, there is the Kampung Kuantan fireflies; the many waterfalls in Ulu Langat, Ulu Yam and Rawang; as well as the Broga Hill.
The great Titiwangsa Range runs across Selangor. Should you be inclined to trek up the many hills and mountains here, you’ll discover that they each feature a unique personality that is simply thrilling.
The multicultural heritage in the country is richly celebrated in the state all year round. Depending on the time of the year, you’ll be part of its many celebrations such as Eid, Chinese New Year, Thaipusam and Deepavali. Not to say the least on the great variety of food and handicrafts easily found here.
The state capital is Shah Alam, while Klang serves as the royal capital. Shah Alam replaced Kuala Lumpur as the capital city of the state of Selangor in 1978 due to Kuala Lumpur's incorporation into a Federal Territory in 1974. Shah Alam is also one of the major cities within the Klang Valley, an area in Malaysia comprising Kuala Lumpur and its suburbs. The city has a number of shopping malls, like AEON. The Malaysian supermarket chain Giant Hypermarket is headquartered here. The university is located nearby the state capital. Rayani Air has its head office in Shah Alam. Don't mix this with the Irish Ryan Air. This one has eight Boeings.
Shah Alam is well connected to other main cities in Klang Valley via a network of major highways. Highways also connect the city to two major airports. The Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) located 30 km south of the city serves international flights and is connected via the ELITE highway, while the Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport in Subang caters to domestic flights and is connected via the Federal Highway.
The KTM Komuter commuter train service provides for residents who use public transportation to other major cities, connecting Shah Alam with KL and Port Klang. This route stops at three stations within Shah Alam.
